The boys in green kicked off their NatWest 6 Nations campaign on the 3rd February in the Aviva stadium against the French, with their first home game on the 10th February against Italy.

Despite beating England in last year's 6 Nations, Ireland finished second to the English and will be looking to gain revenge on the Red Rose. After a successful November Series from the six nations teams, this years Championship is all to play for.

Ireland find themselves with their most dynamic team in years with so many new talented players such as Rory Scannell, Dan Leavy, Jacob Stockdale and the explosive Bundee Aki all forcing their way into the national team picture, after impressive displays in the Pro14 and Champions Cup.

However Ireland are on a 7 game winning streak and being the last team to beat England, will head to Twickenham on the last day of the tournament with hopes of lifting the Trophy on 17th March.
